SA's best-loved jazz and classical musicians perform live at Spier.

The grand open-air amphitheatre at Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch is the setting for this wonderful event on 4 December 2021 that features two of the most enduring musical genres – namely jazz and classical.

Dubbed Volume 3, the 2021 edition will pay tribute to musical luminaries who have passed away in the past 12 months, including the legendary soprano Mam’ Sibongile Khumalo and renowned Cape Town pianist André Petersen.

Eight hours of jazz and classical music beneath the stars

Jazz & Classical Encounters Festival Bokani Dyer And Trio

The event runs from early afternoon until late evening, so you’ll be able to enjoy live performances during the day, at sunset, and beneath the starlit sky.

Picnic baskets are available and can be enjoyed in the Amphitheatre during the show and guests can pop out at any time to stretch their legs, grab a bite to eat, and stroll around the farm.

Want to spend the night? There’s an accommodation package for two people that includes a picnic hamper, a night in one of Spier Hotel’s Signature rooms, followed by a full English breakfast served in the Hotel Restaurant on Sunday morning (R3 450 for two people).
